Bridges Writing Prompts for Writing Groups and Teachers

Bridges Writing Prompts for Writing Groups and Teachers

Carrick-A-Rede-Ropebridge-by-Castle-View-AcademyJust when I think I am out of writing prompt ideas, my friend Crystal shares another one of her paintings. This one is of the rope bridge in Northern Ireland. She is a plein air painter. Her beautiful homeschooling blog is Castle View Academy, which is very close to the Game of Throne locations. We saw several when we visited her and went on a local tour. The day we were there (thankfully for me) it was too windy to cross the bridge. It was also raining but that did not stop the busloads of people dressed as Game of Throne characters who were touring the area. 

Anyway, terms such as crossed that bridge, we'll burn that bridge when we get to it, there are people on both sides of the bridge, or bridge the gap are metaphors. The idea of a people bridge is a metaphor. 

Metaphor is often regarded just as a device for embellishing discourse, but its significance is much greater than this. The use of metaphor implies a way of thinking and a way of seeing that pervade how we understand our world generally.

I hope some writing groups or teachers might find the bridge free prompt PDF instant download helpful for quick writes, group exit writing pieces, or individual writing practice. Just as an artist begins to paint an image, writers have to start somewhere, as well. Photos, art, and images help provide inspiration.


The first photo is of a rope bridge. Cross the rope bridge they said, it will be fun they said is the text prompt. Of course, one page has the image only for those who like to think up their own ideas from pictures.

Next is an image of a long bridge, both with and without a text prompt. Long bridges might bring some thoughts to mind. I didn't include the quote but it might be an idea. For some reason, I also though of (but left off) the rainbow bridge. Brainstorming bridge ideas will be easy for a group prior to writing. 

"A bridge is like a relationship. You work hard and for a long time to make it strong and then you can expect nothing to change."

Sometimes people are happy to burn a bridge. Maybe a bad job, bad relationship, or experience would be good to leave behind. This image has a text prompt, and also a page with the image only.

This looks like a bridge to nowhere. What might that be about?

There are more pages with and without text prompts, and a coloring page for the littles who might be tagging along to writing group.

Good luck with your writing! These prompts may be used for quick writes, beginning, ending, or actual full writing pieces depending on where the winds may blow.

Happy day,
